Instrument guidance compatible with your ultrasound.
How it Works
Conventional handheld 2D ultrasound does not provide co-registration of imaging and tools, so guidance is often needed to achieve satisfactory targeting. The SCENERGY shows instruments overlaid on live imaging, visually tracking probe and tools relative to each other. Targets can be defined interactively on the CORE touchscreen.
And SCENERGY immediately works with customary instruments (needles, ablator introducers, syringes, etc.), and is visible as insertion paths. In addition, for certain instruments, when using Clear Guide TipTags, the tip tracking also allows the monitoring of insertion depth.
For sterile interventions, CLEAR GUIDE SteriMASK sterile probe covers offer a complete solution.

What Clinicians Say About the CLEAR GUIDE SCENERGY
Having used the CLEAR GUIDE ONE in several of our procedures (such as vascular access and nerve blocks) over the last three months, I think it shows real promise to improve our efficiency and make deeper procedures easier. I also like the fact that it uses our existing ultrasound equipment and needles which has enabled a seamless integration with our existing workflow and processes.” – Dr. Irwin Gratz, Professor of Anesthesiology and Residency Program Director / Cooper University Hospital, Camden, NJ

For beginners, it will give a level of confidence that they know where to start, where to finish, because for them the main problem is to keep the needle in-plane and to predict the place where the tip will shine out-of-plane. Therefore, elimination of complexity and uncertainty may help beginners to feel more comfortable, facilitate success in tough procedures and positively impact the learning curve.” – Dr. Michael Gofeld, MD / Department of Anesthesia / St Michael’s Hospital, Toronto, ON
The CLEAR GUIDE ONE system may have the potential to better facilitate the use of ultrasound guidance for the administration of spinals and epidurals via the paramedian approach. The needle can be inserted outside of the ultrasound field and strict “in-line/in-plane” insertion for needle visualization appears to be unnecessary. Further research to evaluate the potential is certainly warranted.” – Dr. William Craig, MD / San Antonio, TX
